After years of theorising, the title of the much-anticipated Star Wars: Episode VIII has finally been officially confirmed. And it is…. The Last Jedi.
You may recall that, at the end of The Force Awakens, Rey discovered Luke Skywalker, living as a hermit on a backwater planet somewhere. Assuming that the title refers to a single last Jedi, then Luke is the best bet. Though Rey’s nascent Force powers will likely see her train under Luke to become a Jedi herself.
“We have the greatest fans in this or any other galaxy,” goes the official statement on the Star Wars website.. “In appreciation of the fans, we wanted them to be the first to know the title of the next chapter in the Skywalker saga: STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI.”
Star Wars: The Last Jedi arrives in cinemas on December 15th.
